gradeScope  (scan, upload, and grade quiz/test/exams) -Gradescope allows you to automate some grading tasks for a variety of exam types including mathematical calculations, multiple choice, bubble sheets and short answers.  Gradescope may be used for any sized class, but is ideal for instructors of large enrollment courses with multiple graders.  Paper exams must first be scanned to PDF then uploaded to GradeScope. A high speed scanner is available to assist with scanning.  After scanning, the PDF is uploaded to the Gradescope cloud where they collectively fall into well-defined answer groups for easy automated grading of answers.
Training on Gradescope is available for all aspects of Gradescope.
